privacy policy

last updated: 26 Sep 2023

This Privacy Policy outlines how we (Chia Yaim Chong / Yams Music) collect, use, and process your data while you are on this website (yamsmusic.com) in accordance with the Singapore Personal Data Protection Act and the European General Data Protection Regulation.

data we collect when you visit this website

When you access this website, our third-party web service providers may collect your "access information," including but not limited to your IP address, geographic location, operating system, and device type. We use four web service providers:

  1. This website is hosted on the Google Cloud Platform Compute Engine, with access information logging switched off. Google Cloud Platform is GDPR-compliant; for more details, visit their Privacy Center.
  2. This website is served around the world through the Cloudflare content delivery network. They may log your access information for maintenance and security purposes, but we do not (and cannot) access this data. Cloudflare is GDPR-compliant; for more details, see their Privacy Policy.
  3. We use GoatCounter as a cookieless, open-source, privacy-first web analytics service. They log your access information to provide us with said service. GoatCounter is GDPR-compliant; for more details, see their Privacy Policy.
  4. We use Formspree to power the contact form on our Contact page. If you use said contact form, Formspree will use the email address you provide to send us the message you submit. We have disabled message archiving, so Formspree does not store a copy of your email address and message; for more details, see their Privacy Policy.

how we use your data

To enable you to contact us via contact form. We use Formspree to power our contact form, so you can send us an email directly from this website.

To perform simple analytics. We use GoatCounter's web analytics tool to understand our audience as a whole. We are interested in questions like: which countries do our audience live in? How are they learning about us and finding this website?

We do not wish to track you, or even collect data that allows us to track you. That is why we use GoatCounter: unlike other web analytics tools, GoatCounter does not download cookies or other files to your devices, and shows us a relatively limited set of metrics.

Indeed, this website uses no cookies at all.

You can withdraw consent to have your access information collected by leaving this website. Logs with your access information (if any) will eventually be deleted by Cloudflare according to their respective data retention policies.

protection of personal data

While no method of transmission over the internet is completely secure, we strive to implement security measures that safeguard your personal data from unauthorized access, modification, or abuse. Measures include enforcing HTTPS on this website, using multi-factor authentication with our third-party web service providers where possible, upholding the strictest level of spam prevention standards, and implementing Shielded VM on our Compute Engine server. We continue to review and enhance these measures as threats to cybersecurity grow and evolve.

When you click on links on this website, you may be directed to a third-party website or application, at which point this Policy no longer applies.

We may modify this Privacy Policy at any time, without prior notice. Changes to this Privacy Policy take effect immediately upon their posting on this page.
